  • lah_laaI just got started with my closet. It's not very easy, but it's worth it.
  • eskayeffI moved everything I didn't want into a spare bedroom with intentions to sell everything. One day, I packed everything up and donated it...two car loads. I've been curating my life ever since. Four years later and everything I own fits comfortably in one room.
  • susiesnezI gave myself permission to get rid of unwanted stuff!
  • ms_franklin_vpThe #30daychallenge was really the start of me taking action. Once I felt I had permission to let go of things (the a- ha moment from The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up) then I could really act. Then we moved house not long after. Still lhad lots of stuff but it was the beginning.

  • dobsphoto5000Deciding to Move back to ND From NC. Realizing I didn't ever want to be stressed out about what to keep. When I got back to ND, I still found myself saturated by stuff I didn't need. It was all in storage in my mother's garage and apartment. The toughest items to get rid of are my array of Artwork and sentimental items. Beginning the process of digitally photographing some of the things so they can find new homes

  • mr_essentialist@minimalismlife, mine was to define what I meant by minimalism, then it gave me something to look back on when I needed to make decisions during my journey. I recently wrote an article about this, link in my bio.
